With over 150 different species of BWO mayflies that can hatch anytime from February to late November, the Parachute Blue Winged Olive BWO Dry Fly is a fly that no angler should be without. Tied in classic parachute style, this dry fly rides low in the water, and its parachute post does a fine job imitating mayfly wings while making it easy to see your fly in the water. The Parachute Blue Winged Olive BWO Dry Fly is tied with a dubbed olive body and dun tail and hackling to closely imitate the naturals, and its wide range of sizes matches everything from those tiny Baetis of early spring to the larger summer Drunellas.
The Parachute Blue Winged Olive should be fished like most dry flies and drifted without any drag to increase success. And since BWOs are such a prevalent mayfly, the only time that you should leave this fly at home is in the dead of winter, and even then, you never know when a hatch of tiny olives will pour off of the water and get the trout rising.
